Guess What!

Today is a special day for a very special person.  Can you guess? 

It's Carissa's Birthday!!!

This morning, I'm thankful for the thirteen years that I've been able to spend with Carissa. 

~Several things I'm thankful for about Carissa, listed in no particular order~
  • Every Wednesday night, she stays up late just to see us when we get home from Bible study. 
  • She is very diligent in memorizing her Bible Bee verses.
  • She doesn't get easily discouraged or upset when she makes a mistake while reviewing her verses with me--just determines to try harder and keeps going.
  • She has a big, wonderful smile.
  • She often spends time playing with her younger brother and sisters (yes, as evidenced by both the photos!).
  • She spends time talking with her older sisters and we have lots of fun together.
Happy Birthday, Carissa! 
I hope you have a special day and a fantastically wonderful year!  Enjoy being thirteen =)

Happy birthday, Carissa! From what I have seen on your blog (and from what your sister, Amy, posted here) you seem like such a sweet girl! I hope that you have a very special birthday, and are blessed with many more wonderful years of growing and learning in the Lord.
